Hockey rankings: Mountain Vista's climb continues

Mountain Vista is climbing. After scoring 14 goals in two games last week — while only surrendering three — the Golden Eagles jumped from No. 8 to No. 5 in this week's CHSAANow.com hockey rankings.

Monarch remains the top team in the poll after three wins last week, including a nail biter over No. 6 Dakota Ridge.

Cherry Creek jumped to No. 3 and also held off a comeback attempt from the Eagles.

There were no new teams added to this week's poll. The current teams in the top 10 have remained in the poll since Dec. 7.

The rankings, voted upon by coaches and select media members, are the official polls of the Association. During the regular season, the poll will release each Monday.
